8) Do we truly listen to each other and fairly consider one another’s ideas and complaints?
Absolutely. Unless we're busy doing something really important like writing a blog entry or reading Hawkeye Wrestling message boards. But otherwise, yes, 100% of the time. It's critical.
In fact, Jennifer and I have honed our listening skills to the point where we can absorb most of what the other person is saying at a subliminal level without even paying all that much attention. Which allows us to, say, upload a YouTube video and complete an eBay transaction while discussing, say, our relationship. And efficiency is part of the glue that holds a marriage together. We both agree on that. At least I think we do. I recall Jennifer rambling on about it the other day. Or maybe she was talking about something else, I don't know.
But, yes. Definitely. Listening is key.
